We use third party advertisements on this web site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our web site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your Internet Service Provider, the browser you used to visit our web site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a web site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does not track personal information about you, such as your name, e-mail address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all web sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our web site as well as other web sites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a web site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Some pages on this web site request personally identifying information from you, such as your name and e-mail address. Please be assured that confidential information collected is never sold or released to third parties.
